Crossfire Zone is a series of quarterly anthology Star Wars zines published between 1993 an 1995. Thirteen issues were published and the zines averaged 30 pages per issue and won a few Star aWards. The Table of Contents below may only be a partial listing.

This zine picks up where Hibernation Sickness ended, at least in terms of printing some of the chaptered fiction.

Reactions and Reviews

Zaniness from the Bayou...this art and stories (including a nine-zillion-part SW soap opera called Back to Bespin) as well as stuff like clippings, crossword puzzles, reader profiles, and classifieds. Lorrie and Melanie's pro-fandom zeal is what gives CZ its charm. For newer fans especially, this is a very user-friendly zine. And, since it comes out five times a year, it's a good way to get a steady supply of SW/ fanzine fixes.[1]
